Milly Dowler Police To Submit New Evidence

Detectives investigating the murder of Surrey teenager Milly Dowler in 2002 are preparing to submit a new dossier of evidence against convicted killer Levi Bellfield, it has been reported.

Milly, 13, disappeared while walking home from school in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey in March 2002.

Her body was found in September that year in woods at Yateley Heath in Hampshire.

Bellfield, 41, is serving a life sentence after being convicted of the murders of Amelie Delagrange, 22, and Marsha McDonnell, 19, last year.

The former nightclub bouncer was also found guilty of the attempted murder of 18-year-old Kate Sheedy in 2004.

Bellfield was arrested and questioned over Milly's murder four years ago.

Surrey Police will send the file of new evidence to the Crown Prosecution Service, which will decide whether to bring charges against Bellfield.
